Wood Chain

I finally finished attaching all the elements to complete these two necklaces. I enjoyed every minute of this project. I tried out some new techniques and incorporated this interesting wood chain idea.

I thought the wood and gold was particularly pretty. The contrast between the two weighs of this chain was surprisingly minimal. I was worried the gold side would be so much heavier that it would twist when I wore it. I am happy to report it does not.

Birdie girl is a favorite. I used some very old chain from my stash to finish her.

Have a wonderful Sunday Friends!
